The upcoming Congress of the Mediterranean Phytopathological Union entitled “Safeguarding Mediterranean Plant Health” will be held in Limassol, Cyprus, during spring of 2022. The meeting promotes dissemination of the latest scientific advances and encourages dialogue and collaboration between researchers interested in all aspects of Phytopathology. The conference language is English.
We plan to have a large event to showcase the role of Mediterranean Agriculture and Phytopathology, in safeguarding our food, traditions in Mediterranean Diet as well as food security for the whole planet. We also wish to be able to celebrate again seeing all good friends and colleagues at the 60th birthday of the Union (1962-2022).

This conference will also have a session for Abiotic Stresses and in particular drought and salinity stress as well as methods to mitigate these stresses. The meeting proceedings will be published in the international journal Phytopathologia Mediterranea.
A number of abstracts presented as poster contributions will be selected for short oral presentation and discussion. Participation of young researchers is strongly encouraged, and reduced registration rates are available for students and fellows. Awards will be given to best student posters and presentations.
We are looking forward to welcome you in Limassol. Your attendance will contribute to the fruitful exchange of scientific ideas and help to forge new friendships and future collaborations. We are sure that your participation in the conference and your experience in our city will be scientifically rewarding, highly enjoyable and truly unforgettable.
